Thanks DS-21. I was aware of the Dynamic EQ like part of Dolby volume, but I wasn't aware that it was implemented in the MRX receivers so I didn't mention it in my post.

I agree the manual could spell it out better. But on p. 17 it tells you how to use the loudness compensation part of Dolby Volume without messing with the compressor:

“When Dolby Level [sic] is Off the frequency response adjustment still applies unless Dolby Volume is also Off.”

IMO, the MRX sounds best at all volume levels with Dolby Volume on, and the Leveler Amount zeroed out.

Thanks for the explanation. I'll have to try it with Dolby Volume On and the Leveler Amount Zeroed out.

What do you mean by zeroing out volume leveler? It goes from "Off" to "Low" to '1'.
